Monochrome Moment: Canal Boats

(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

This week's Monochrome Moment shows canal boats at Portland Basin on the Ashton Canal. The boats are moored outside the very good Portland Basin Museum, which is free and well worth a visit if you are in the area, as long as you remember that is it closed on Mondays.

You can see the stern of Hazel and the bows of two other historic wooden canal narrowboats that belong to the Wooden Canal Boat Society. Behind that is the modern trip boat Still Waters.

See Birds Eye View of this location.

  1. I love old narrowboats - they're fascinating.

  2. love the portland basin as i spent most of my day,s as a child by the cut,me and about 10 other kids used to borrow a iron boat which was moored at portland basin and take it for a sail,and nobody got drowned..

  3. This shot is amazing - the light and compositon make it look great. I'm guessing it looks better this way than it does in colour.

  4. Judge for yourself - this photo was taken at the same location but on a different day.

  5. B&W photography at it's finest!

  6. Great shot. I love the way the old boats look and it's such an interesting picture.
